Rococo Plaster Mouldings

Rococo Plaster Mouldings
Despite its seemingly very traditional Chinese design, and the fact that the New Territories (where Tai Fu Tai is situated) didn't join the British colony of Hong Kong until 1898, it's obvious that the owner the Man family had connections to the British society in Hong Kong, or had travelled overseas, for Rococo-style plaster moudlings and painted glass windows, both non-Chinese features, were incoporated above a wall passage in the house that was built in 1865.
